The Absa PSL defending champions topped the 16-team log with 30 points after 14 games and were five points ahead of second-placed Mamelodi Sundowns, who still had a game in hand going into the break.
The two giants are set to meet on January 23, with the Naturena-based Glamour boys hoping to use the game to widen the gap and lay a strong foundation for the defence of their title. Nkhatha said this week all this was a result of proper planning followed by action. “We are happy with the results. We talked about winning the games in succession heading to the festive break,” said the ‘Man of the Match’ in Chiefs’ last game against AmaZulu.
“We have always wanted maximum points. We worked hard in training and got the results. I would like to thank my team-mates for the support they always give me to deliver. When you have the support of your team-mates, it pushes you to do well. I would like to thank them highly.”
A victim of booing by his own club’s fans, he has refused to throw in the towel and seems to have risen from the loss of scoring form to win games for the Amakhosi and worm his way back to the fans’ hearts again.Post published in: Football
